Italy has been one of the hardliners in the iGaming market given that the coalition government propped up by 5 star Motion has chosen to deliver on its electoral guarantee and introduced a blanket restriction on all types of betting advertisement. Yet, this has not discouraged GVC Holdings to re-launch its online poker brand, partypoker, in Italy after a four-year hiatus.
Partypoker has already set-up its Italy-facing website and the operator announced it had actually currently gotten a license which kicked in on April 1, 2020. This marks a crucial turning point for GVC’s popular cardroom along with a new opportunity to add to the growing liquidity of European poker.
Spain, France and Portugal are currently busy and offered when it comes to poker, but progressing, Italy will also introduce a growing offer. The current competition schedule has actually not yet been revealed however it’s anticipated to be revealed in the instant future.
